He didn’t convince the jury of his innocence, but he did prove he’s stupid.

Self-confessed dimwit James Jimenez was convicted yesterday of swiping actress Kirsten Dunst‘s purse from the penthouse of a Soho hotel.

Jurors delivered a guilty verdict even though they essentially bought the car mechanic’s alibi: that he was too dumb to carry off the crime.

One juror said the panel was struck by “just how immensely stupid he came across…He didn’t seem capable of a premeditated crime.”

Jimenez had argued that he was too dopey – his lawyer called him “Mongoloid” – to realize his pal Jarrod Beinerman was sneaking him into the hotel to steal stuff.

He also claimed that Beinerman was invited to the hotel for the “How to Lose Friends and Alienate People” movie shoot in 2007 because he was a drug dealer.

During the trial, defense lawyer Robert Parker asked Dunst if she smoked pot. The “Spider-Man” starlet denied it, but her assistant admitted she had pot.

Outside court yesterday, Parker claimed that Dunst has in the past publicly admitted to using marijuana. “If that is true, she clearly mislead the jury,” he said. “She committed perjury.”

Kirsten Dunst publicly stated she smokes pot, she got on the stand and said she didn’t smoke pot,” Parker added.

“I’d like to inquire further about her public statements concerning marijuana.”

The jury was unswayed by the insinuations and convicted Jimenez of burglary and tresspass – after jurors at his first trial deadlocked on the charges.

As Jimenez was led out of the courtroom in handcuffs he winked at his mother, Nilsa, and said, “Bye, mom.”

“I don’t care what I have to do,” she said later. “If I have to go bankrupt, I will go bankrupt. But I will prove my son is innocent.”

I was there with the on-location drug dealer AND I’m a myopic, drunken Mongoloid.

It’s throw everything against the wall time for the Brooklyn car mechanic accused of swiping Kirsten Dunst‘s $2,000 Balenciaga purse after sneaking into a 2007 movie shoot at the SoHo Grand hotel.

In summations today, the defense lawyer for convicted shop lifter, gun toter and car thief James Jimenez argued his client had permission to be at the shoot because his friend was an invited guest — the guy who “delivered” drugs to the penthouse greenroom used by Dunst and Brit actor Simon Pegg.

That, plus the fact that his client is “a little Mongoloid.”

Jimenez was “intoxicated” that night, has terrible, “myopic” vision and “you may even say [he’s] a little Mongoloid,” defense lawyer Robert Parker announced before jurors began their deliberations.

“But being dumb is not a crime,” he said of Jimenez, who testified he didn’t know he was at a hotel — “I thought it was just a building, I don’t know,” — and didn’t know there was a shoot going on despite the paparazzi and giant lights outside.

“I thought it was construction, or something, I don’t know,” he told jurors.

The actress — who starred as superhero love interest Mary Jane in all three Spider-Man movies — is the only reason everyone is in court, the lawyer claimed.

“We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for the name Kirsten Dunst,” defense lawyer Robert Parker said, telling jurors the burglary charge against Jimenez would never have been pursued if it involved “you or I.”

Then there’s the “I’m here with the drug dealer” defense, in which Jimenez is claiming he had to have had someone’s permission to have been able to wander around restricted areas of the hotel so freely.

Dunst, Pegg, and two assistants who’d been on the penthouse floor had all testified that Jimenez and his former co-defendant had never been invited to the floor.

But that didn’t stop the defense lawyer from trying to surround the penthouse in a figurative haze of pot smoke — telling jurors that Jimenez’s co-defendant was a “big drug dealer” and grilling Dunst’s assistant on the small baggie of marijuana the assistant admitted having in her own purse, also stolen.

“Someone wanted them to be there,” Parker said of the two men’s ability to roam the hotel — prosecutors would say “case” the hotel — for about an hour without anyone kicking them out.

Meanwhile, prosecutor Patricia Stolfi urged jurors to ignore all the nonsense and focus on the video clearly showing Jimenez prowling the hotel for an hour before exiting with a heavy-looking white shopping bag.

“The defendant tries to blame everyone else but himself,” she said.

Deliberations began at lunch.

Kirsten Dunst‘s co-star Simon Pegg became the fourth witness yesterday to blow away the weed-wacky defense of an accused burglar in a star-studded Manhattan trial.

The British actor — best known for roles in “Shaun of the Dead,” “Run Fatboy Run” and as “Scotty” in a recent remake of “Star Trek” — told a jury that he and Dunst were shocked to return to their green-room suite at the Soho Grand Hotel during a 2007 movie shoot and found their bags and electronics had been stolen.

“My belongings had gone — I noticed that straight away,” Pegg told a Manhattan Supreme Court jury.

Defendant James Jimenez, 36, of Coney Island, is hoping to beat the burglary rap by insisting he had permission to roam the hotel while it was taken over by the cast and crew of the movie “How to Lose Friends & Alienate People.”

His lawyer, Robert Parker, is insisting Jimenez was at the shoot with a friend who he claims was invited there as the on-location drug dealer — a convicted heroin felon currently serving time after copping to the burglary.

But so far, Pegg, Dunst and two assistants on the shoot have all testified that Jimenez and his friend most certainly did not have permission to be anywhere near the penthouse suite where the belongings went missing.

“Absolutely not!” Pegg insisted yesterday when asked if he even knew who Jimenez and his co-defendant, Jarrod Bienerman, were.

Summations in the case are scheduled for today. Jimenez, whose rap sheet includes shoplifting, gun possession and a car heist, faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted. He has turned down a plea deal for two years in prison.

It was witness stand, the sequel, for Kirsten Dunst.

The “Spider-Man” star reprised her role Tuesday as a star witness against a mechanic being tried — for the second time — on charges of helping steal her designer purse from a Manhattan hotel suite during a 2007 movie shoot.

Wearing a demure, loose black dress and a sometimes weary expression, the actress gave jurors a clipped, subdued account of returning from filming to find her $2,000 Balenciaga handbag gone from a SoHo Grand Hotel penthouse suite.

Her assistant’s bag and co-star Simon Pegg’s cell phone and other possessions also were taken from the room, which was being used as an actors’ lounge while the 2008 comedy “How to Lose Friends & Alienate People” was shot downstairs.

“All our belongings were gone. I thought that my assistant had taken them and put them somewhere else, but everything was gone,” Dunst testified. Inside the bag were her wallet, credit and other cards, vintage Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses and $2,000 in cash, she said.

Besides calling hotel security staffers and police, “We even went outside to look for our bags, like maybe it was dumped in a Dumpster,” she added.

The mechanic, James Jimenez, was convicted last fall of trespassing, but jurors deadlocked on a more serious burglary charge. He’s being retried on that charge. Defense lawyer Robert Parker said Jimenez, 36, just tagged along with a co-defendant he believed had permission to be there.

Dunst, 28, played her part in the real-life court drama Tuesday in a noticeably more somber, matter-of-fact manner than she did at Jimenez’ first trial in September, when she greeted judge and jurors with a chipper “Hi!”

She rebuffed Parker’s suggestion of a party atmosphere surrounding the overnight shoot on Aug. 8 and Aug. 9, 2007, which concluded her filming obligations for the movie.

Parker has noted that co-defendant Jarrod Beinerman has a drug history, including pleading guilty in the 1990s to playing a part in a drug-dealing ring. Beinerman wasn’t charged with any drug-related offenses in the SoHo Grand episode; he pleaded guilty in 2008 to attempted burglary and was sentenced to 4 1/2 years in prison. His lawyer, Mitchell Elman, declined to comment Tuesday on the Jimenez case.

Dunst’s assistant, Liat Baruch, testified last week that she had a small amount of marijuana in her own bag and was planning to smoke it after the shoot. But she and Dunst testified that Dunst knew nothing of that, and Dunst said she doesn’t smoke the drug.

“We wrapped at 5:30 in the morning and found our bags were stolen, so we went home,” having celebrated with nothing more decadent than a takeout dinner order from the posh sushi restaurant Nobu, the actress said.

Her bag, wallet and cards were eventually returned to her manager’s office, but she never recovered the cash and sunglasses, she said.
